THE DAY TODAY
Astrology is essentially a study of time. That’s why I am especially interested
in recent research which indicates not only that time can move backwards, but
that it can do so not far from where it’s moving forwards. If you found this
difficult to understand then don’t worry, so do the scientists who are trying to
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr. 20)
Disagreements will centre on issues which are bound up with your status and
prestige. Professional ambitions may be involved, but advance at work is not
necessarily the main thing on your mind. Some difference of opinion is actually
desirable if it helps to highlight contrasting options.
TAURUS (Apr. 21 – May 21)
If you deign to discuss your plans today not everyone will be appreciative of
your ideas. It’s actually more likely that you will keep your intentions secret,
realising that you are currently ahead of the times. Or, at least, that’s the
way you feel!
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
Social plans and commitments seem to be definitely connected to spiralling
costs. Is there any way in which you can rearrange your finances so as to cut
down on unnecessary spending, even if other people complain? I say that partly
because, otherwise, family expenses may increase.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
The planets are in a demanding mood, though it’s unlikely that you’ll be sucked
back into the conflicts of the past. This period is far more positive, and you
may profit from pressures imposed on you by family and relatives. That said, the
next few days find you in a very strong position.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23)
You hold most of the trump cards, although bear in mind that help is vital if
you are to reach your goals. In particular, you may need advice on the legal or
ethical implications of your plans. You also have the edge in a close emotional
relationship, which means that it’s up to you to look after a partner’s
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23)
All may not be sweetness and light, at least not as far as personal
relationships are concerned, but there is a strong case to be made for meeting
disagreements head-on. Harmony and co-operation will be restored just as soon as
outstanding differences have been aired.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23)
Enjoy all the praise and attention you receive from partners, and don’t resent
criticism when it is well-intentioned. Also, feel free to seek out only those
people and places that please you. Actually, this is quite an ambitious day, one
when you will be able to accept – and relish – a new responsibility.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22)
Make the most of favourable planetary aspects to press ahead with routine chores
both at home and at work. On no account should you involve yourself in arguments
or debates which do not concern you. In matters of the heart, your hopes are
high – so keep your feet firmly on planet earth.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 22)
Although nobody can deny that you have behaved impeccably, this is not the
point. Ordinary standards of behaviour do not apply at a time when you are
attempting to liberate yourself from past restrictions. But what I would say is
this – you’re happiest surrounded by familiar faces.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 23 – Jan. 20)
Soon you will have to accept a proposition relating to your career, or place
more emphasis on ambitions which are purely personal and private. You may be
tempted to decline an offer once and for all. If you’re filling in your social
diary for the next few days, then keep some time spare for surprises.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19)
You have so many irons in the fire, it is no wonder that you are running out of
time. Only you can know how the choice you must soon make between different
options will affect your future happiness. But, actually, you don’t yet know
exactly what the choice will be! So much is still to be revealed.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar 20)
Be thankful that planets aligned in a difficult relationship with each other are
currently smiling on your sign. The likely result is that a spot of friction
will be just the thing to spur you into action. At work, make helpful personal
relationships your top priority.
